House Of Divine And Annabella's New Booking System!

21 posts in this topic

Now when you make a booking with these guys they associate your phone number with your own unique booking reference code! I asked if it was stored on a system/database and they assured me it wasn't but how do they know it's me when I call? It must flag up on their system when I call with my unique number, so they can cross reference my details! This means it surely must be stored on some sort of database otherwise what's the point of having this system in place! I stupidly called from my personal number and now they have this stored somewhere! If they get raided the police will have my number on their computer and my call history! I would advise calling on a pay as you go SIM card as they must be storing numbers in some way? I'm also worried that if someone hacks into their database or one of their staff members steals their file contains all the personal numbers they can call you and hold you to ransom? Hope this doesn't happen! I think I will call them and demand they remove me from their database!

It's likely just the reference number is written down and only the person given it would know it which proves you are known as a punter who shows up. When you tell them your reference number they can see if that reference number exists or not. It doesn't need your phone number attached.

If you go to the Milton Keynes section, I think it's the "Milton Keynes ladies you have seen" thread the they have explained in great detail not only how it works but exactly why they have brought in the system. I'm sure if you read that then you will see it was for a good reason x

No the number is not stored anywhere.We have your name, your reference number and the last 3 digits of your phone number. When you do not show we keep a track of the details given. Interestingly we have one chap today call to book Julianna 3 times using a different name but the same number. Each time he has told us he doesn't have a reference number, each time he has not shown up. 

 

We do not store numbers. They are of no use to us and we have hundreds of clients a day it would be time consuming and useless to us. People who are genuine have zero problem with the system and are already seeing the benefits personally.  The only people I have had show resistant are the two hateful men booking Julianna and Delta all day. With this system Julianna has been busy all day despite a chap called Tom?, Ian etc trying to book…..

For someone so paranoid I'm really surprised you called from a personal number.

Thanks for the reply and I can understand why it has been implemented. I do not however like the way you're accusing myself of being one of these perpetrators? Sounds like the person replying at Annabelle's needs to go on a customer service course along with Chloe Kiss as it sounds like she works there. For the record I have visited Annabella's last week on a recommendation from one of the girls at House of Divine but don't think I'll be visiting again, if you go around accusing people on here who are asking an innocent questions! I made a booking with House of Divine this morning and it wasn't explained in great detail why this system has been enforced.

I made a booking with House of Divine this morning and it wasn't explained in great detail why this system has been enforced.

The booking number system was brought in by myself for customer service reasons. It was to give genuine clients a chance of seeing the girls that were having their time wasted by no shows and stalkers that were booking them up all day and then laughing in their faces when they knew how many times the poor girl had to sit and wait for a client that was never coming.  I didn't accuse you of being anyone.I said we had a Tom, Ian and Adam book Julianna and not show,Tom, Ian and Adam all had the same last 3 digits phone number so when we looked through the phone we saw it was all the same person. We then looked at the last digits on our booking system and Tom had done the same last week.  

 

We explain to each person why we have the booking system when they call in great detail. I work at the office so I know this happens, I have mentioned it on twitter and here and as previously stated only two people have had a problem with it. On each 5th use of the number when booking, clients receive a £10 discount on that appointment. So they have welcomed the system as it gives us a chance to thank them for their repeat business again part of my customer service ideas. To come on here and state we store numbers and have some huge database that people can hack into and police can attain is not fair as it is total rubbish. We do not store numbers,we never ever leave a paper trail but we will be keeping the numbers of people that constantly abuse the girls that work for us and sharing them with our other establishments.

No, I do not work for them in any capacity.

 

No, I did not accuse you of anything, I simply made a statement as I have no idea who you are. Anyone could be anyone on here

Wow.  And if the data base did exist, and the police did get hold of the number, they would contact you for what reason exactly?  The answer is none.  Visiting a parlour is no crime, and the police in this country are really pretty law abiding and would not follow up with a list of punters when there is no reason to do so. And ransom? Ouch - very risky - for them. even if the first guy paid, many punters are more likely to call the police rather than pay out.  Blackmail is a nasty crime with high penalties - there are many easier ways of making money.

 

Of course it is your money your choice. It is wise to be cautious. I have never been to Annabellas so I cant comment one way or the other from personal experience.  But they seem aware of guide lines and the data protection act and so on.  For all we know all the others are worse.  So anyway a punting phone seems like a good idea.  But if the sex is good at Annabellas or HoD then I'd say dont be afraid of going back - better than my evening! (as I almost drift off topic)

I am actually surprised that you don't store the full numbers!  Even every small businesses do it, no matter what is inquiry is.

Maybe parlous and incall escort agencies are illegal, but the people who contact them are not doing anything wrong. 

 

I have emails from clients stored from 2001, and SMS from 2007. Yes: many of them changed emails, phone numbers, but at least 70% of it still the same.

 

If somebody so bloody paranoid, then they should find some alternative to the punting. (there are plenty of those)

Xenia it is difficult for people to imagine our set up but we have a dedicated office away from the premises. We have 2 full time receptionists handling the calls, sometimes 3. Our phones never stop and as often mentioned on here even with 2 receptionists calls are often missed. We do not have the time to keep numbers. We merely note the last 3 digits and if that chap causes us a problem we can get his number from the phone log and then it is deleted every night. It is just how we work. We have lived way too many years under the forum microscope to take any chances with a clients privacy  and up until a few weeks ago it had worked for us. I can understand an Indie wanting to keep tabs on people but I am not sure I would want to keep quite an extensive log. I also had a quite relaxed attitude to this when I worked as an Indie,if someone was going to make my life hell they usually found a way regardless.

Can I just ask if you made a booking with Annas last week after seeing a girl at HOD why did you not use the booking number given by HOD or your previous number given by Annas ? That would have been your 3rd appt with us and we would have known you were a genuine client.

Hasn't punting always been complicated? Not tried Annab's new booking system yet, hopefully I'll get thru I without too much trouble...

Never used to be complicated, when I first started punting you just phoned a number from a newsagents window, job done.

I am sure the staff members, you know the ones that will run off and use it against you are also pissed off at being accused just like you are. Or is it because we work in this industry we don't have that luxury is that what you are saying. We should just eat it up and accept it from a Mighty person such as yourself that half of us are Potential crooks. Hypocrisy gone mad and on meth

I can bet my life on it half the people and I am one in this business have done numerous massive honourable things to save clients/ men's butt's that didn't deserve it even, but we do because we are just like that. Something Sir I doubt you would ever do if you were called upon.

Have a nice day

Ps slag me off if you want I rarely come back in threads to engage in trivia, I say what i have to say and go so happy talking to yourself. .

Seeing as females who work in the sex industry have a 40% mortality rate higher than "normal jobs" I think the agency are right to store numbers from trouble makers. It's actually reassuring to see an agency actively protecting the women who work for them rather than letting any random guy have a booking. And unless you have been attacked/mugged/raped I don't think you have any right to imply that the agency upping their security is a bad thing.

Does the new booking system prevent calling from a pay phone?  As a visitor to the UK I do not have a mobile I can use in London and expected, as I have done in the past, to book a number of appointments by calling from a pay phone.

Probably get an answer faster if you just phone them and ask them

Why don't you get a UK sim card when you arrive, I usually always get or have a foreign sim card for when I'm punting abroad, no one these days uses pay phones, and many agencies and ladies wont take booking via a pay phone.
